After New York’s magical run ended last night with a Game 5 loss to the Royals in the World Series, former White Sox slugger Frank Thomas said the Mets have nothing to hang their heads about, except for, well, everything.
Check it out.
“The Mets have nothing to hold their heads down for,” Thomas said on Fox’s postgame broadcast. “Except they didn’t play that well and they gave away this World Series.”
That’s a big burn from the Big Hurt.
Regardless of what Thomas said, the Mets far exceeded expectations this season. By winning 90 games in the regular season, New York surpassed its Vegas over/under by nine wins.
The Mets claiming their first NL crown since 2000 was just as unanticipated.
To Thomas’ point though, errors, along with Lucas Duda’s errant throw home in Game 5, proved costly in three of Kansas City’s four wins.
In addition, New York twice blew a ninth-inning lead.
